Safety, effectiveness, and dosing guidelines for propofol injectable emulsion, USP have not been established for MAC Sedation in the pediatric population; therefore, it is not recommended for this use.

Propofol injectable emulsion, USP is not recommended for induction of anesthesia below the age of 3 years or for maintenance of anesthesia below the age of 2 months because its safety and effectiveness have not been established in those populations.

Propofol injectable emulsion, USP is not recommended for obstetrics, including Cesarean section deliveries.

Important Safety Information

PROPOFOL should be administered only by persons trained in the administration of general anesthesia and not involved in the conduct of the surgical/diagnostic procedure.

Use of PROPOFOL has been associated with both fatal and life-threatening anaphylactic and anaphylactoid reactions. PROPOFOL is contraindicated in patients with a known hypersensitivity to propofol or any of PROPOFOL components, and also in patients with allergies to eggs, egg products, soybeans or soy products.

Strict aseptic technique must always be maintained during handling. PROPOFOL is a single access parenteral product (single patient ready to use syringe), which contains benzyl alcohol (10mg per mL) to inhibit the rate of growth of microorganisms, for up to 12 hours, in the event of accidental extrinsic contamination.

PROPOFOL has no vagolytic activity. Reports of bradycardia, asystole, and rarely, cardiac arrest have been associated with PROPOFOL. Pediatric patients are susceptible to this effect, particularly when fentanyl is given concomitantly.

PROPOFOL should not be coadministered through the same IV catheter with blood or plasma because compatibility has not been established.

Administer PROPOFOL with caution in patients with disorders of lipid metabolism such as primary hyperlipoproteinemia, diabetic hyperlipemia, and pancreatitis.

Abrupt discontinuation of PROPOFOL prior to weaning or for daily evaluation of sedation levels should be avoided.

For both adult and pediatric ICU sedation, PROPOFOL infusion has been associated with Propofol Infusion Syndrome, that have resulted in death.

Neurosurgical Anesthesia: When PROPOFOL is used in patients with increased intracranial pressure or impaired cerebral circulation, significant decreases in mean arterial pressure should be avoided because of the resultant decrease in cerebral perfusion pressure.

Cardiac Anesthesia: Slower rates of administration should be utilized in premedicated patients, geriatric patients, patients with recent fluid shifts, and patients who are hemodynamically unstable.

This Important Safety Information does not include all the information needed to use PROPOFOL, Injectable Emulsion, USP safely and effectively. Please see full prescribing information for PROPOFOL, Injectable Emulsion, USP.
